Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Canonbury

Is the fact that my solicitor in Canonbury is not identified on my bank's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the standard of his conveyancing?

It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should contact the Canonbury conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

I have given 8 weeks notice to my current landlord and must vacate my rented flat in Canonbury by 30/8/2019. Conveyancing for my house purchase is underway. Is it possible to complete in 4 weeks as I wish to avoid having to move into short term accommodation?

It is unwise to provide notice on a rental unless you have exchanged. Assuming that you have not already done so, update to your solicitor and request that they chase the owners side, try to an acceptable time-line that everyone will look towards

Your solicitor will review the registered title as conveyancing in Canonbury can sometimes identify restrictions in the title deeds which restrict certain alterations or necessitated the permission of another owner. Some works need local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be wise to check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.
